It does nothing to ensure people are getting taken care of. It has nothing to do with what kind of care they are provided.
There was a study done backed by people supporting obamacare. It showed that the people who received the best care between states in the US depended on the care that medical personnel/facilities provided. And it had nothing
to do with whether or not the people had health insurance. So if the goal was better care then why not put more/better regulations on the kind of care provided to the people? Because that would not generate money for the government.
Does having car insurance make you a better driver?
People take better care of themselves if they can't afford to get sick. lol
